Phil 'OMGClayAiken' Galfond Set to Start a New Poker Site

After successfully launching BlueFirePoker, Phil ’OMGClayAiken’ Galfond is now looking to start another site, named Poker Static. This new site will be the main rival to compete against the popular PokerRoad.

Galfond and Bill Murphy started BlueFirePoker in 2009, which is a portal that offers tutoring services. Thanks to the wonderful crew members the site became a huge success in a short period of time.

This one success story wasn’t enough for OMGClayAiken, now he seeks to endeavour into the poker media by launching the new site Poker Static this Monday.

As mentioned before, Poker Static can be viewed as the main rival for PokerRoad, with its main attraction power being focused on podcasting. Besides this, all up-to-date information, such as news, interviews and other interesting subjects will also take residency within the site. Phil Galfond is not alone in this project, teaming up with other professionals like the Dang brothers and SNG specialist Nick ’Stinko_Mikko’ Rainey.

The two hosts are said to be Eric ’EB’ Bickel and Bret Oliviero. Bickel and Oliverio used to work together at Mediocre Poker Radio, as well as a show called ’The Junkies’, aired by one of the popular Washington radio stations.

Poker Static has already got some interesting material on offer, such as a funny interview with Ziigmund and also Damien from PokerTableRatings discussing the recent issues concerning the Cereus Network debacle.

As it is visible upon visitig the site, Poker Static still has some technical issues to be solved. Maybe it has already attracted more attention than Galfond expected, the fact that it is very slow and tends to freeze on occasions shows that the team of programmers have many sleepless nights ahead.
